Bauer Comeback "On Target" For 2010 Melb Cup
Meanwhile 2008 Melbourne Cup runner-up Bauer's comeback "is progressing well" & part-owner Simon O'Donnell confirmed the diminutive UK stayer "has recovered from a tendon injury & is set to resume serious race gallops in the next month". O'Donnell noted: "The scans have all been clean & the horse has been in work a long time now, with the intention of coming back to Melbourne for this year's Cup. He's built up from walking to cantering & trotting & will start his serious race gallops in July. The intention is to give him 2 or 3 runs in Europe & assuming all goes well & the horse pleases Luca (Cumani, trainer) then he'll be headed back to Melbourne."
